Project idea - app to track status and reliability of ISPs
Project idea for some web hacker.
Create an app that will let a user install it and input their internet service provider (Unity, P1…) and then track
1) status - up or down
2) track history of up and down time
3) location of user
4) dropped package results, ping time, download speed would also be nice…
5) present the historical and current data
Business that are proud of their performance should publish accurate data. However, the ISPs here are often down without posting any notice of that. Performance can be extremely poor (with > 33% package loss this afternoon for example on P1 in city center JB) but no notice is posted by the ISP on what is going on, what they are doing to fix it, etc..
Transparency is a good thing. Hacking tools that help provide transparency is a good thing. With transparency customers can find businesses that provide reliable services and in doing so help those businesses prosper.
There may already be an app in existence somewhere?
It seems this would be useful anywhere that ISPs don’t provide good transparency.
